Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 8, 2018


Boston opened as a 1-point favorite before it went up a point, while the total has jumped from 214 points. The spread can be found with the Celtics as a -2.5 favorite at most sportsbooks, while the total is either at 216.5 or 217 at most places you look.


As of Thursday afternoon, 82 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Celtics. Online wager info also states that 53 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Boston point guard Kyrie Irving missed the last game with knee soreness, but is expected to play tonight. Minnesota point guard Aaron Brooks has missed the last two games due to a personal matter and is questionable for tonight.


Minnesota has struggled since the injury to Jimmy Butler, dropping five of its last nine games. With Butler healthy, Boston defeated the T-Wolves 91-84 on its home court back on Jan. 5. The Celtics have won the last three meetings straight up and covered the spread each time. With the Celtics on a roll winning five of their last six games and the lone loss being a 123-120 defeat at the red-hot Rockets, I think this is a good spot and a short enough spread for them to record another victory.
